OTHER ITEMS OF INTEREST.
A 0OII.KU IMPLOSION.
Redwooii City, July 12.—At an
early hour this morning the residents here were awakened by a loud
report that shook the ground and
rattled the windows. The boiler of
the threshing engine belonging to
Alexander Gordon, of this place, had
blown up on his farm, a short distance from town, instantly killing
Mr. Carr, onginoer, and fatally injuring Louis Solicito, the foreman.
Carr was standing at his post and
hud just started the engine for the
day's work when the explosion took
place. He was blown to pieces and
all portions of his remains have not
been found. Solicita was considerably inrthor away from tho engine,
but he .is frightfully mangled and
death is. thought to be but a matter
of a few hours. Another account
from San Jose says that Louis Solicita, foreman, was killed and Ed.
Carr, engineer, and the nephew of
Jesse D. Carr was fatally injured.
OllAKGEMEN IN LINE.
Toronto, July 12.—The Orange
demonstration to-day was a great
success. There were 53 lodges and
between 3000 and 4000 men in the
procession.
A COLLIERY ON FIRE.
Pottsville, Pa., July 12.—One
of tho best collieries of tho Philadelphia and Reading Co. is on fire
and probably doomed to destruction,
entailing a loss approximating $100,-
000. Three hundred men and boys
will probably be thrown out of employment.
ON  HER WAY HOME.
New York, July 12.—Queen
Kapaloni kept in her hotel to-day
and rested previous to going on the
journey to San Francisco. This
evening the queen and party will
leave on the six p.m. train and it is
not intended to make any break on
the journey between points.
DILLON ON THE LAND BILL.
London, July 12.—Dillon resumed the debate on the land bill in the
commons to-night. He said he rejected the measure with contempt
us utterly inadequate to meet the
needs of Irish tenantry. Attacking
the clauses of tho bill seriatim, Dillon declared the first, dealing with
the ease of lease-holders, the only
one which promised to be beneficial
iu its operation. The others would
make evictions easy and destroy the
confidence of the tenantry in the
land court.
MALICIOUS     REPORTS    AIIOUT      IB
MEXICANS.
El Paso, Texas, July 12.—A
package of circulars was received
here yesterday morning intended to
stir up a feeling against Mexicans.
Tho circulars began: "Official Bulletin No. 1, head-quarters America
and Northern Mexican A. it D. Co.,
New York city, July 1st, 1887."
Under this announcement, which
appears in glaring type is the following:
"Americans, head and act.
'•The latest Mexican outrage is ou
an American, his wifo and daughter,
who havo just returned from a
Mexican dungeon, a small peat-
black hole at Paso Del Norto, Mexico." Then follows a telegram from
Wioheta, June 28th, stating that
A. Bird, of Now York city, manager of nn opera troupe, has been
thrown into jail at Paso Del Norte
and confined for a long time. Four
of the company are dying with
small-pox. * Tho bulletin closes with
this language: "Tho above associated
press tolcgram was published in the
daily press on Wednesday, Juno 29,
but olosely followed by n special
telegram from Washington with consoling information that tho state
department poop-poohed at this last
reported Mexican outrage. Sinco
the advent of the present Democratio
administration a half hundred cases
of falso imprisonment and murder of
American citizens in somi barbaric
Moxico, accompanied by the sworn
statements of many witnesses, have
been officially reported to the state
department at Washington, and up
to this moment no reparation, no
satisfaction whatever has been demanded of Moxico by our government. It is now time for all true
Americans to rise in their might
uud oall 'Halt' to the greaser of
Mexico and again administer the
lesson of 1884 and '86 and let it be
a lesson that will never have its
scar effaced nor its ofucaoy questioned.    (Signed)
"RY ORDER OF THE EXECUTIVE COMMITTEE."
When tho Wicheta dispatch was
first published tho mayor of the
province of Paso Del Norto and
Consul Brigham were interviewed
and both pronounced the Bird story
a malicious lie. The grain of truth
in this falsehood is this: Last January a company of young men from
the city of Mexico calling themselves
"Spanish students" arrived at Paso
Del Norte after a tour through
Moxico. They were under contract
to play at Paso Del Norte.   On the
-'"'ling set for tho performance an
audi  ii.,., ...  ».«,   -
some disagreement in payment the
"students" refused to sing and, according to Mexican statute were
thrown into jail. A member of the
company named Suarco, who is now
employed in a store in Paso Del
Norte, was interviewed to-day and
said: "We were in jail abont an
hour when all were liberated on
bail, wealthy Spaniards going on our
bonds. The troupe consisted of
nine Spaniards and five Mexicans,
but no Americans. Two days after
our imprisonment the entire troupe
performed in El Paso and later at
Paso Del Norte, where the company
broke up. Six of the Spaniards are
going to California and from there
to Deuvor. The remainder of tho
company, except myself, went back
to tho Oity of Mexico. No one by
the name of Bird was connected
with the company and it is supposed
that Cutting is liooding the frontier
with these bulletins, calculating to
arouse the animosity of the citizens
of El Paso and Paso Del Norte."
PREPARING FOR THE SECOND READINO.
London, July 12.—The division on
the second reading of the land bill will
take place in the li'.uso of commons on
The government hns secured a mechanical majority of the Conservatives
which promises important amendments.
They say that the bankruptcy clauses
will bo abandoned in committee, and
that an amendment will be introduced
giving the court of judges power to receive judicial rents nnd they claim that
these alterations in the bill will modify the opposition of the Parnellite
members to the measure.
FROM Tne FAR EAST.
London, July 12.—Cholera has
broken out in Gardinia.. A dispatch
from Candia, Crete, says the Christian
deputies hnve withdrawn the anti-tax
manifesto and appealed to the Sultan
for redress. It is cxpectod the settlement of the trouble in Crete ran now
be reached,
THE DUBLIN ELECTION.
Dublin, Jnly 12- The election for
a Beat for the Dublin university, made
vacant bv the elevation of Attorney-
General Holmes to the Irish bench,
took place to-day. Two candidate,
stood, Madden aud Hon. Richard
Cledeharsuns, both Conservatives.
Madden was elected, recetving#137o
votes against 710 for his opponent.
THE NEW HULOARIAN CABINET.
TuiNovA. July 12.—A new cabinet
for Bulgsaria has been formed. Mr.
Stocleff, president of the council, and
A. D. Interim, minister of finance;
M. Ettchevis, minister of foreign affairs; M. Tnchomakoff, minister of
public instruction; M. Strausky, minister of the interior; Major Petroff,
ministor ef war. M. Stocloff has telegraphed to the prefects of the departments ordering them to release political prisoners.
HONOLULU INTELLIGENCE.
Sax Fkancisco, July 13.-Tho steamship Australia arrived here this morning from Honolulu, sailing from that
point at noon of July 5th and bringing Hawaiian intelligence down to that
time. No further outbreaks or demonstrations of any character occurred
after tliOBe described us having taken
place on Friday and Saturday, Juno
30th and July 1st, which resulted in
the overturning of tho Gibson ministry and tho written plcdgo from King
Kukolun to promote constitutional reforms and submit to tho will of the
people Tho military continues to remain on duty hut no further public
assemblages havo been hsld'. The
now ministry has assumed control and
thu now constitution wns to be laid
before the king ns tho steamship sailed.
Ex-premier Gibson and his son-in-law,
F. H. Selden, who ivore arrested on
Juno 30, wero hold in jail until Saturday night, July 2nd, when, owing
to tho years of Gibson, ho was taken
to his homo by order of the now attorney-general, where ho remains under
military guard. His trial wns set for
July tith. Cyprian Cobb, secretary to
tho ux-niinister of foroigu affairs, who
wns also arrested was released on bail.
The excitement in the kingdom hns
appiirently so thoroughly subsided thnt
on Monday, July 4th, tho celebration
in honor of Amorica'B natal day occurred at Honolulu, lt was attended
by fully tivo thousand peoplo. Patriotic addresses woro mndo by
Honorable G. W. Murroll, American minister, and Honorable George
E. Whitney, of California. The national snluto wns fired from the stone
battery. During tho afternoon tho
American minister held a reception
which was attondod by King Kalakaua
and members of his staff and a ball
was given at night at the Music Hall
which was attended by tho naval officers of the U.S. and representatives
of the foreign embassies, together with
a largo roprosontation of citizens of
Honolulu. Honolulu papers in commenting upon the change of administration predict that no further publio
outbreaks are expected, provided a
new constitution is adopted and reforms inaugurated. The Hawaiian
()a:rtte in an editorial says: "The word
of the king cannot be taken.by his
people. It has been proved again and
again that it is not worth the paper it
iB written on. In fact we remember
circumstances so well i .that we are not
going to bo deceived again." In reviewing tho occurrence at Honolulu,
which resulted in Uie collapse of the
ministry and the arrest of the chief
advisers of Kalakaua for alleged malfeasance of money and other crimes, it
appears that the king was inclined to
mako a stand against the populace, but
wus quickly disabused of the idea that
he could make a successful light.
Whon the steamship Australia arrived
from Sau Francisco with nearly ten
thousand stand of arms the JJMUJjMt
ing was called which sent the ultimatum to the king. All approaches to
the palace were barricaded and the
Gatling guns had been placed in the
palace, together with a considerable
quantity of fire-arm., but when it became known that the populace really
meant to light, the retainers of the
king began quickly to disappear and
he had no alternative but to make a
sudden resolve to concede everything,
aud even then appeared to fear his life
was in danger, which caused him to
ask the American and other foreign
government representatives toasssume
the control of affairs temporarily. On
Saturday night, July 1st, peace having
been thoroughly restored, the citizens'
committee posted a proclamation declaring that the Honolulu rifles could
maintain order and requesting citizens
uot to appear on the streets armed
until further orther orders. The new
ministry, it is declared, has already
discovered that all public funds have
been exhausted. The daily Bulletin
declares that in addition to the regular
revenue all Postal savings bank deposits have disappeared and that it waa
owing to this fact that the king feared
personal violence.
THE SULTAN STILL KICKS.
Constantinople, July 13. — Tha
sultan still persists in his refusal to
sign the convention with England in
reference to Egypt in ita present, notwithstanding ho is urgently advised to
ratify it both by Germany and Italy.
FRENCH HATE.
Paris, July 13..-German residents
have beon ordered to remain in-doors
to-morrow, as it i. feared that they
would be attacked if they appeared on
the streets during the celebration of
the anniversary of the fall of Bastilo.
The patriotic league have announced ■
that they will make a demonstration
to-morrow morning in tho Place de La
Concorde and another in the Boise de
Boulogne in the afternoon. It ia
feared that these meetings will give
rise to disorder, and the police and
military authorities are making preparations to maintain peace.
i   Col. Snort Discouraged.
Not long since Ool, Snort, who wu
reading a New York paper, somewhat
astonished Johnny Fizzletep,his yoang
assistant, by throwing down the paper
and bursting into a Oood of tears.
" Why, Ool. Snort, what is the matter?"
"Johnny," replied the Colonel,
dashing aside a manly tear, "you
know how hard I've tried to build up
tho Crosby County Clarion and Farmers' FiWmifor and make it a power in
the land ?"
" Yes," replied John, " if tha paper
is not what it should be it's not your
fault. You have tried to make it interesting. Why, in lut week's iuue
you said that the Houston Toitier represented that element in journalism
that was always hankering after a free
meal—skirmishing around for a free
pass."
"I did that very thing, Johnny, and
last spring I called the editor of the
San Antonia Daily Tocsin a little lickspittle grenser with a thimbleful of
brains."
" And hew you paralyzed the editor
of the D»llns Unichr by calling him a
slim; reptile wallowing in the filth that
gave him birth. And you laid out the
editor of the Fort'Worth Bazoo by
calling him a bald-headed baboon.
whoso frothy ravings and outlandish
gibberish made him an objeet of melancholy derision to his friends."
"And thst wss a pretty sorry lick I
hit the Austin Demagogue when I
called him a .limy viper, whose only
live ad. was paid for in stomach bitters."
" Well, Colonel, if as you say you
have done so much to elevate ths lofty
mission of the press, why are you discouraged?"
" Because, Johnny, it is uuleu for
a little Texas oountry paper like the
Crosby County Clarion and Farmers'
Viiulicator to try to compete with the
great New York dailies. Just read
what Mr. Pulitzer says about Hr.
Dana, and what Mr. Dana says in reply. It's no use, Johnny, we can't
compete with the groat New York
journalists. I can't find any language
that in point of vituperutiou equals
that of the New York press. Take '
the bucket, .Johnny, and go for soma
boor."—Texas Sifiing*.
Mrs. A. Nelson, Brantford, writes:—
"I was a sufferer from chronic dyspepsia
for eleven years. Always after eating,
nn intense burning senution in the stomach, at times vory distressing, caused a ■
drooping mid languid feeling, which
would Inst for several hours after eating.
I was recommended by Mr. Popplew.fi,
chemist, of our city, to try Northrop 4
Lyman's Vegetable Discovery and Dyspeptic Cure, and I am thankful to uy
that I have not been better fer years;
that burning sensation and languid feeling has all gone, and food does not He
heavy on my stomach. Others of my
family havo used It with best results. gaily. § ritish Columbian

Tbe River Noutli.
It is stated on authoiity whicli
cannot be doubted that the condition
of mutters at the mouth of Fraser
River is worse now than it has been
for years. The three outside buoys
whioh are supposed to mark the entrance to the main channel are so
far out of place that they cannot be
taken as guides to the channel at
all. Vessels entering aro obliged to
grope about with line and load and
find deep water as best they may.
This condition of things has existed
for some weeks, and although representations havo beon mado to the
proper authorities nothing has beon
done. There is no lack of water,
because 15 feet is the shallowest
place found at about half tide, and
if a more complete examination
were made it is not improbable that
a channel still deeper could be found.
At the entrance to the north arm
the most important beacons were
carried away last winter and have
ter which demands iniineaiate antl
careful attention. The Fraser River
is incomparably the most important
river in British Columbia, and if
the people of the mainland sit still
nnd allow the entrance to be neglected and the obstacles to navigation to accumulate, thoy will very
soon find trade leaving the river
altogether and making for itself
new channels elsewhere. The government steamer Sir James Douglas and the snag boat Samson arc
supposed to he available at all times
for the purpose of keeping the buoys
in place and clearing away danger
ous snags, and it is supposed to be
the business of the marine and fishery agent to see that every obstacle
to the safe navigation of these
waters is removed The Samson is
lying idle at the wharf opposite
this city, and where the Douglas is
we do not know. In the mean
time some vessel attempting to enter
the river in a storm will bo wrecked,
and the responsibility will be laid at
the door of the government and its
agents, It seems impossible ever
to secure promptness in matters relating to the mainland when the
official agency is in Victoria. When
Capt Lewis obtained the appointment of marine agent it was hoped
things would be different; but it is
to lie feared he is drifting into the
old condition of inaction which
made his predecessor so unpopular.
Either that, or the regulations by
which his actions are governed are
quite unsuited to the circumstances,
and need immediate revision. Matters pertaining to the navigation of
mainland rivers ought to be under
control of a mainland oflicer, and
nothing less than this will meet
mainland necessities.
American Pacific Squadron.
The statement made by an American officer respecting the Pacific
squadron of the United States,
which appeared in our despatches
of yesterday, is not very complimentary to a great, powerful, progressive nation of over 60,000,000 in
habitants. To a question concern
ing the IT. S. force on the Pacific he
replied: "We haven't any; at least
none to speak of!" The vessels of
the II. S, Pacific squadron are in
quality and quantity so inferior,
that if congregated together for any
serious business they would become
a target for absolute ridicule. The
guns are of the old-fashioned smoothbore kind, utterly useless in modern
warfare, and the whole fleet musters
only about 1300 men, including the
crews. Moreover, it would require
a long time to concentrate these obsolete vessels anywhere und to put
them in fighting trim. One fairly
good man-of-war, built and supplied
after the modern pattern, would
have no difficulty at all in sinking
the whole U. S. navy on the Pacific.
This is not creditable to a nation of
such population and resources, nnd
having a surplus of something like
one hundred million dollars a year.
The interests of tho United States
on the Pacific ought to be even
larger than those of Great Britain,
and her naval power should be proportionately great. But while Britain has on this coast a well-equipped
and powerful navy, the United
States is practically defenceless on
sea and land. Fortunately the relations between the two countries aro
of tbe most friendly kind, and the
navies have always shown a praiseworthy disposition to assist each
other when required; and in the
case of the Hawaiian revolution we
doubt not that British vessels will
be found defending the rights of
American citizens if necessary. We
hope these friendly sentiments will
grow larger and not less, and that
it may come to be within the range
of possibility that a very firm treaty
of alliance offensive and defensive
may be entered into between the
two. nations. There are in the
United States certain.elements of
internal danger whioh, if not regulated with a strong hand, may some
day become very serious, The foreign population ia large and heterogeneous, and generally antagonistic
to the spirit of American institutions. Communism is not an American organization, but it is assuming
proportions and practising methods
that are  incompatible  with true
liborty. The United States is not
a military nation, but it is in danger
of neglecting tho ordinary safeguards which nro always nocossory
to stable government and public
safety. 	
Messrs. Parker & Laird, of Hillsdale,
writes: Our Mr. Laird having occasion
to visit Scotland, and knowing the excellent qualities of Dr. Thomas' Eeleotrio
Oil, concluded to take some with llittl,
and the result has been very astonishing. Wo may say that in several instances it has effected cures when ailments had been pronounced incurable by
eminent practitioners.

D. ROBSON,
e-*'^tk^t^ml«wml,aaW\^^tWA at A JAPANESE ACCOUNT OF FANS. |      .JOHN SLY'S COMMISSION,
Probably a Chinese Invention-Vans for
Ceremonious Occasions.
Dr. D. IS. MoCartee, for many Tears
a missionary and educator in China
and Japan, and now a resident ot
Washington, District of Columbia,
has favored us with a translation he
has made of a Japanese account of
the fans of that nation. Dr. MoCartee is one of the most accomplished Ohinese and Japanese scholars
m America, and his views on any
Oriental custom cany the weight of
authority.
The present communication is a
translation from the French of Mr.
Matsugata's report entitled "Le
Japon a L'Exposition Universale
de 1878."
There are in Japan two kinds of
fans; one called seneu (Ohinese Bhen-
tizu), which folds up and is easily
carried; the other of a round shape
and which does not fold up.
No one knows exactly tho origin of
fans in Japan, but the traditions have
uniformly taught us that about the
year 670 (A.D.), during the reign of
the emperor Tenji (who adopted many
of the institutions and customs of
the Chinese), an inhabitant of Tamba,
looking at bats folding and unfolding their wings, conceived the idea
of making fans of leaves, whioh
from tbat circumstance bore the name
of kuwa hori, which means a bat.
The fan called Hi gi [or Hitreo
fan] was made from the leaves of
the Hi-no-ki (Chamaoyparis obtusa).
The leaves were tied to each, other by
threads.
Another kind of tan called Ohnkei
(Chinese Chu Kin, lit bamboo tendons
or veins) is made of bamboo. It has
the appearance of being half open
when it is shut. These two kinds of
fans are only carried on the occosion of
great ceremonies.
The ordinary fan) are made in
Kioto, Osaka aud Owari; bnt the better
kinds are made in Tokio. The leaves
(ribs, bones, sticks or stays) of fans are
mado of bamboo, but ivory, shell and
shitan wood (imported from China) are
also used.
Thoy are decorated with mother-of-
pearl, coral and laoquer work. Tho
paper which covers the "bones" of
the fan is frequently ornamented
with gold leaf, drawings, flowers,
birds, etc.
It is sometimes necessary to give
the paper a coating of shiber (or
varnish made from the juice of the
raw persimmon) to give it greater solidity or firmness.
Thero is also a kind of fan very
rich in quality and of a larger size,
whioh is used by dancers to beat
time, or in making graceful motions.
The Aohiwa, or fans which do
not fold up, come principally from
Nara, some twenty miles or so
from Kioto, They aro generally made
of paper, but sometimes of silk.
About KiCO (A.D.), during the
period called Kuambun, a (Buddhist) preacher named Gensel, noted
for his artistio taste, and who
was also a poet, devoted himself
at Fukakuse, in the province of Xatn-
oshiro, to the making of fans, which
were vory beautiful and in perfect good
taste.
These fans, whioh acquired a great
reputation, were known as Fukakusa
Uchiwa, They are one of tho principal produots of that province. The
best Uchiwa are made at Tokio, bnt
as the varieties of this kind ot fans are
very numerous, we will not weary
our readers by enumerating them in
detail.
[Nor*.—The translator does 'not
hold himself responsible tor the inconsistencies ot this account. The
emperor, Tenji, introduced many of
the Chinese manners and customs into
Japan and many imitations ot the
Chinese official forms and offices. Calendars, almanacs, and the mode ot
denominating the year, were all introduced about the same time from China
and fans probably at the same time
also. The Chinese name used in Japan
would confirm the supposition that
the better kinds oi tans, at least, were
introduced from China.—D. B. McC]

The One Thing to Teach Delghten.
There never was better advice given
than that which Washington Irving
once gave a lady:
" Don't be too anxious about the
education ot your daughters; they
will do very well; don't teach them
so many things; teach them one
thing."
"What is that, Hr. Irving?" she
asked,
"Teach them," he said, "to be
easily pleased."

Be Has Some Experience As a Detective.
John Sly lives in a romantio
village in the State of Ohio. There
is also a great deal of romance
about John. That is, he has lately
had a great deal of romance knocked
out of him,
John was a hostler at the village
hotel barn, but while he did his work
in a satisfactory manner, he was by
no means satisfied. Ho compared himself to an cagle chained by the leg
to a hen coop. He longed to break
his bonds and soar.
He was undecided whether to join a
circus or hire out on a steamboat when fortune decided his
fate.
Ho received a circular from " The
Great International Detective Agency"
of Cincinnati, explaining that the
secretary of that organization had
heard of his natural detective talents,
and was desirous of giving him an
appointment. Tho said appointment
carried a commission with it, and
this commission would bo sent on
as soon as John Sly had forwarded the
sum of 85.
Any one who imagines that the
hostler was ovor thirty minutes mailing
his monoy for that commission is
greatly mistaken.
In thirty minutes more he had quit
his job, and his friends could see
that a great change had come over
him. Ho bad a knowine look. H«
suddenly became reserved. He
began to glide abont like a
cat.
In due time the commission arrived, and a letter with it, warning
John to be on tho watch for counterfeiters, horse thieves, bank burglars and other wicked folks.
They had struck the right man.
Inside of an hour he had a pair of
handcuffs and a revolver strapped
to him and was ont on the
watch.
Suspicion soon began to thrill his
soul. The Mayor of the town had
a wicked, depraved look; several merchants seemed to be startled when
suddenly addressed; the village blacksmith was seen banging around the
bank as if making an examination of
tho windows.
For two or three days and nights
John Sly nursed his suspicions and
kept his eyes open. Then it struck
him that a real detective ought to
turn up something startling in order
to clinch his reputation, and he arrested tho chief of tho fire department, two members of the council
and tho bank cashier, and marched
them iu a body to tho jail.
His first surprise come in when
tho jailer wouldn't receive them,
bis second when they laughed at
his commission, his third when a
constable and a warrant landed him
in a coll for illegally impersonating an
Officer.
John Sly is in jail yet, and four men
around   howling   for his blood.
i'hoy don't want his blood exactly, but
they aro determined to send him either
to a lunatic asylum or State prison.
The days como and go, and the
nights chow up with great regularity,
and John sly reads and re-reads that
commission, gives himself a vigorous
kickiug, and cries out in plaintive
tones:
" Oh, why didn't someone come to
me and tell me that I was born a
fool?"

OUTWARD BOUND.
I sit and watch the ships go out
Across tlio widening sea;
'   How one by one, In shimmering sun,
They sail away from me.
I know not to what lands they sail,)
Nor what the freight they bear;
I only know they outward go,
While all the winds are fair.
Beyond tho low horizon lino
whore my short sight must fall,
Somo other oyos a watch will keep,
Where'er tho ships may sail;
By night, by day, or near, or far,
O'or narrow seas or wide,
Those follow still, at love's sweet will,
Whatever may betide.
Bo round the world the ships all sail,
To dreary lands or fair;
So with thorn go, tor weal or woe,
Somo dear ones everywhere.
How will therospeed each lagging keel,
Whon homeward it Is laid;
Or watch will keep, o'or surges deep,
It thero a gravo be mado 1
0 human love, so tried, so true,
That knows not mete nor hound,
But follows with unwearied watch
Onr dally changing round I
0 Lovo divine, 0 Lovo supreme,
What matter whore I sail,
So I but know, where'er I go,
Thy watch will nover fall?

A Shepherd's Blah Discovery.
Once a shepherd, caught ont upon
the hills by night, built a tin under
the lee ot a pile of atones that ho
had tossed together. The heat split
some of the stones, and in tho morning tbo man saw within one of the
cracks a piece of shining silver on.
That happened in Peru, and thus
was discovered the mines ot the
Corro do Pasco, whioh have yielded

CANADA'S COMIC JOURNAL
GREAT IMPROVEMENTS FOR 1887.
THE AIM OF "GRIP" is to set forth, In
in an impnrtlal and Independent manner, tho passing events of Canadian political and social life. Its Cartoons Bpqnk
moro definitely and moro pleasingly than
who'o columns of editorial. In this pungent, easily appreciable, and artistic style
of presenting a subject, tlio whole situation Is revealed al a glance. The success
of Wr/p shows how well I his fact. Is appreciated—Its Cartoons on iho passing political events of the country being even
more eagerly sought after than the chaste
aud humorous Ictler-prcss of the paper,—
though the latter Is equal to that of any
similar publication on ihe continent.
Tho publishers uf Grip are making ex
tensive improvements for 188ft. Tho old
cover Is to tie discarded, end the journal
will hereafter comprise 12 pages, and be
printed on heavy toned ami calendered
paper,—every number boingsoartistically
executed as to compart* favorably with
tho best papers on the continent. The
advts, will be compressed and more syslc-
matleully arranged; while similar lm*
provements will bo made as to the letterpress. A new and handsome design will
adorn the-title ptiRO; while tin Cartoons
will certainly nol sutler from extensive
Innii'ovenioulH In the artistic department.
Theprleeof Grip will hereafnr he ft! a
year, which Is lower than Unit of tiny
paper of its kind In America,—most of
(hem selling fur *."■. Single miuilicrs of
(7ri> will he III cents.
Twioeayonr.nl Midsummer nnd Christmas, n beautiful special number will bo
issued, the number of pages Mm* increased, and nlensing features Introduced,
parlleulars of which will he given In preceding Issues. Those numnws will he
presented to subscribers without extra
charge.

THE BRITISH COLUMBIAN
Printing  Company
I0-.I1£ITE2D.)
ON THE 10TH OF JANUARY, 1887,
the Columbian Nowspapor and
Printing Concern wan purchased by a
joint stock company composed of citizens
cf New Westminster, to be known as tho
"British Columbian Printing Co.,
Limited." Tho concern 1ms been for
nearly a year owuod and controlled by
tlie British Columbia Stationery nnd
Printing Company, of New Westminster,
Victoria and Vancouver. The object of
tlio new company is to continue the publication of tho BnmsH Colombian newspaper aud carry on a general printing and
publishing concern, controlled entirely by
tlioso whoso individual interest it wilt be
to promote the development, especially
of the Mainland. Tlioro will bo no
slackening of tbo energy hitherto dis*
played in tho management of tlio establishment, and its patrons may rely upon
receiving full value for thoir money.
The Columbian will continue to be entirely independent in both Dominion and
provincial politics, and will devote itself
to tho advancement of such schemes .as
may bo considered in the publio interest.
The concern is iiowcntirolyBcparatefrom
nny other business, tbo book and
stationery establish mr tit in this city
having been taken over by Mr. T. R.
Pearson, who will continao to carry it on
iu his own name and for his own benefit,
It is desirable that a daily newspaper
should be maintained in tbls city, and
tho now company asks for publio patronage on tho ground that it is engaged in
an enterprise calculated to promote tho
public welfare It Asks that the Col*
umbian bo judged on its own merits and
supported only so long aa Its policy is
onconsistt with its professions, In con-
suiptcnce of this business change all accounts duo tlio concern must bo settled
without delay so that tho books of tho
former company may bo adjusted and
closed. Addles-, ...1 communications and

Suicide at Golden City .—Sergt.-
Mnjor Luke, of D. Division, N. W.
mounted police, while in camp at
Golden City, suicided on Friday last
by shooting himself. He complained
of a sovere attack 6f neuralgia. At
night he retired ns usual. Early iu
tho morning one of his comrades heard
n pistol shot. Ho got up nnd looked
into tho sergeant's tent, but saw him
apparently asleep. It was not learned
what had happened until about 0
o'clock in the morning. When lie did
not come out to join tho force some of
tho men went to his tent aud found
him dead. The bullet passed through
tho front of tho head, entered the
right temple nnd came out at the left.
He wns buried nt Golden City on
Sunday.
The Fk'aser Mouth.—We nro informed that the buoys at the entrance
to tho Fraaer River, both north nnd
south arms, nro very badly out of
place, and that great inconvenience is
experienced by navigators in consequence, Tho channel ut the south
arm has slipped considerably outside
of No. 7 buoy, nnd between the first
two buoys thero is only about M feet
of water at low tide. On the sand
heads there aro two rows of buoys
and between these the channel is supposed to be; but it is found necessary
now to enter about 100 yards north of
No. 1 buoy, and to koop to the north
of Nos. 2 nnd 3 ns well. After passing
No. 3 thero is water enough between
tho two rows of buoys, but Nn. 6 is
100 yds. too far north, arid No. (i is
too far mirth by 250 yds. Vessels
coming in find it necessary to tako
soundings and feel their jvfty as best
they can, Thero seems to be no lack
of water, as there is a depth of ut
least 15 feet nt half tide in the shallowest place, and if the real channel
woro properly surveyed probably even
a greater depth would bo found. Tho
buoys at the outer entrance nre not
sufficiently conspicuous. At the north
arm threo of tho most important beacons wero carried away last winter,
and havo never been replaced. There
are also sevcrnl dangerous snugs in tho
river. Those matters ought to be
promptly attended lo by the proper
authorities. Wo understand that the
board of trade has been put iu possession of tho facts, and will inuko such
representations to the minister at Ottawa ns may produce the desired result.
